Blood Donor Has Saved MILLIONS of Babies

If you know me, AJ, you know how much I encourage blood donation.  Well, check this out.

Every 2 weeks for the past 61 years, a man in Australia - James Harrison - has made a trip to the Red Cross blood bank. The 81-year-old has a rare antibody in his bloodstream that is used to make a lifesaving medication given to pregnant women who’s babies have an opposite blood type as them.  If they don't get the medication, the baby could die.

James has made 1,173 blood donations and is credited with saving the lives of 2.4 million babies. On May 11th, he made his final blood donation.
